Rigid Tool Bars are Generation II style with double frame
welded construction, 7 x 4 x 3/8 hitch bar and 7 x 7 x 3/8
main tool bar and cat. III and IIIN hitches.
Proven KMC spring loaded Swivel Coulters effectively slice
through crop residue allowing shanks to run clean in heavy
The heavy-duty Shank Mounting Bracket mounts across the
diamond of the 7 x 7 tool bar giving a stable secure
connection that prevents shanks from “walking” on the tool
Standard Ripper Shanks are high clearance, 1 ¼” thick, wear
guard protected, made of high strength alloy that resist
abrasion and bending. The shear pivot point is positioned to
virtually eliminate “pole vaulting” and resulting wear on
pivoting components, and the shear bolt is positioned for
easy replacement. 33 inch frame clearance and high clearance
shanks provide for a sub soiling range from 10 to 18 inches.
Shanks are mounted in a front to rear staggered arrangement
that provides for excellent trash flow.
Reset On the Go Ripper Shanks are optionally available for
speed and convenience.
A 12 ¾” diameter, steel, cleated Roller rolls freely without
hesitation leveling the surface while leaving an undisturbed
Turnbuckle adjustable roller mounting arms provide infinite
height adjustment for the roller allowing the weight of the
implement to be placed on the roller during field operation
thereby providing excellent surface leveling capability.
The unique KMC Sub Soiler Point with splitter has proven to
significantly reduce blowout in tough soils.
Breaks the hardpan in fall or early spring allowing water
and nutriments absorption for use by winter cover crops and
spring row crops.
Helps prevent runoff and erosion.
Gives cover crops a growth advantage.
In many cases eliminates the need for sub soiling under the
row at time of planting.
Levels the surface in preparation for spring planting.
